TheBigVlad, you requested emails when this topic is updated, but the email address for your BN account does not exist. Please update it.
Ok, I couldn't change my email address because apparently I already had a BN account attached to my current working address, which is this one. I'll just use this account going forward.
You could change BigVlad's email into another (or I can), then change TheBigVlad's email into your current address, if you prefer to preserve your posting history in one chronological place.

Ah, though that seems like a new thing? Didn't the referral info used to be passed by URL parameters to the standard link? Perhaps I'm thinking of another site?
Not very new, the referral link was first used on March 21, when Blue's joined the affiliate program. Before that evening, plain links without referral code were used.

You may be confusing it with HumbleBundle.com links, which contain URL parameter 'partner=bluesnews' since May 8, 2020.

That would be pretty tough, not in the least because of the three view modes that need to be taken into account, and not something I will be able to invest time into any time soon, if at all.

If you enter
* REMOVED *

Exactly as that

What do I mean? I mean internal server error and everything ;p

Tis related to the * symbol
Yes, the asterisk interfered with some regexp code for highlighting the search term(s) in news search results. Fixed now, thanks for the heads-up.

There is no highlighting in forum searches, btw.

Took me a while to realize that that is a button at all heh, I am red-green color blind, to me this looks jarring (like worst red ever and this I can barely read But I admit I never looked there
The searches should be all in 1 place no? Why is it 3 places? This be confusing to a newbie like me
Regardless of color (Blue is also color-blind), all buttons above and below posts are styled the same way, with a rounded colored box around the word(s) which lights up in a solid color when hovered. And the Search button is on all three page-types so it is always easily accessed. In the latter two types (topics index and thread listing) the link includes a parameter to pre-select the pertaining forum (e.g. General Discussion in my examples) in the search form.

I click on ADVANCED SEARCH
That is in the menu under the big bold SEARCH NEWS heading. Evidently it does not search the forums, then.

eRe4s3r wrote on May 30, 2022, 11:59:
Lol, there is zero indication that searches topics

Like for real where you even find that search function?
There is a green Search button, like for real, above the Forums Index, every topics index, and every thread listing. You must have tried really hard to overlook it.

Meanwhile, I have been looking at the server error for the news search, still considering the correct approach to fix it.

I have five users ignoring me. Maybe those were before I became a mod?
Correct.
Sooo, should that be undone?
I suppose that creates a level playing field. Done, and for the other two moderators too.

A tiny thing Blue didn't mention is that the count of 'Users ignored by me' was also added. It logically equals the number of entries in the table, but now you don't have to count the rows yourself anymore.

That is a neat little idea: the footer logo now links back to the homepage on other pages, and on the homepage itself it scrolls the window back to top. Thanks for the suggestion. Thumbsup

Hey Blue, any chance you could make the logo in the footer link back to the homepage like the header does? If not that, maybe just go back to top of the page.
As has been reiterated from time to time, site requests shouldn't be buried in an unrelated news topic. And certainly not double-posted. Rolleyes

Hey Blue, I have a feature request. Can you please make the logo in the footer either link back to the homepage or to the top of the current page. I would prefer homepage.

I find myself trying to click or tap it probably 140% of the time.

You already reported your own post, a new topic wasn't necessary. The fix was trivial (swapping ']' and 's').
